New Delhi: Delhi chief minister and national convener of the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) Arvind Kejriwal has called a meeting of the party’s Delhi MLAs on Monday morning to discuss the ongoing alleged “bulldozer politics” by the three BJP-ruled municipal corporations, party leaders aware of the matter said.
They said the AAP is looking to chart out a political counterstrategy. The meeting was earlier called on Saturday, but was postponed due to the Mundka fire tragedy.
